Interesting… from a user perspective, they should make Apple and Google talk to each other, otherwise you can only enjoy the full messaging experience with friends and contacts who have the same phone brand.
You might not remember them if you don’t follow Android news closely, but Allo and Duo are Google’s latest messaging and video chatting apps.
